Product description


"Michael Mann is one of the planet's great climate scientists, and Tom Toles may be the great climate communicator--together they are a Category 5 storm of information and indignation, wreaking humorous havoc on those who would deny the greatest challenge humans have ever faced. Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org
"If you are not concerned about climate change yet, please read this book. If you are unaware of the hardcore deniers among us, read this book. If you are a climate change denier, doubter, techno-fixer, or lukewarmer, read this book. Mike Mann and Tom Toles have written some words and drawn some pictures for you, so maybe you'll get it this time. Bill Nye, The Science Guy
"Brilliant, insightful and fresh! Two gifted experts - one a scientist, the other an editorial cartoonist - invite you to be entertained and outraged, inspired and motivated to escape the madhouse that characterizes climate dialogue and politics today. New and hilarious insights into climate change. I loved it! Jane Lubchenco, Oregon State University
